The local community in Llandovery, at the gateway to the Brecon Beacons, are inviting bikers to make time for more than a pit-stop at the picturesque, historic town with a special Motorbike Weekend on 8-9th July – to show fans of the steel horse just what it has to offer!
Hundreds of motorcyclists pass through Llandovery every year, stop for a cup of tea and then travel on to other destinations. This summer Llandovery is hosting a weekend centred around motorcycles in a bid to give riders a more complete picture of the town, and a reason to stick around longer. The weekend will begin on Saturday 8th July with a bike show, cookery demonstrations, stalls and childrens activities. There will be an opportunity for bikers to stay over utilising the local hotels, B&Bs, campsites and self-catering accommodation that is readily available. In the evening there will be an array of musical entertainment provided by the local hostelries and a free film show!
On Sunday 9th July the town’s streets will feature motorcycle-related stands with the day ending with a closing parade of the bikes.
Two of the key event organisers are Jonah and Sue MacGill, who run a five star self-catering holiday cottage near the town. Sue said: “Llandovery is already a magnet for bikers, so we’re celebrating that by welcoming and promoting responsible motorcycling in what promises to be a really exciting weekend.”
